It really shouldn't be that bad to remove . After RR tie removal , mostly it will be you on the business end of a round point shovel . I can't believe ROSEMARY would have a very big root ball . Then add some compost , grade area (may need to pack down dirt a little in the holes left) , & seed .

Be thankful you don't have to dig out medium size "sucker" trees like I did .....serious root digging .

The rosemary smells lovely while I am mowing the lawn, but I am not putting any effort into maintaining the "garden" and, well, juts by looking at the plants it is pretty obvious!

Thanks for the help!!!

Personally just pass along to the neighbors to meet you say Saturday at around 9 or 10 am, or later in the afternoon with a shovel and bucket or wheelbarrow. Let them know that you are having a plant removing session and that they can take whatever you have marked with say Orange flags.

You will also find out that if you pack a Ice Cooler with Wine, Beer & Soda. You will have more than you expected to come to help fix up the problem. Then do the same thing with the next neighbor and so on.

Great way to get everyone to know who lives in the neighborhood.
